AbstractThis Open File provides tabulated values of relative sea-level projections for 59 locations in Canada and 10 locations in the adjacent mainland United States up to the year 2100. It complements Open File 7737 "Relative Sea-level Projections in Canada and adjacent mainland United States", which included plots of projected relative sea-level change but did not provide numerical values. The relative sea-level projections are based on the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5) and on GPS observations of vertical crustal motion. Projections are relative to 1986-2005, and are given for 2007 and every ten years from 2010 to 2100 for the median value and 5th and 95th percentiles for Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios RCP2.6, RCP4.5, and RCP8.5. As well, the projected sea level at 2100 is given for a fourth scenario where Antarctica is assumed to provide an additional 65 cm of global sea-level rise to the median projection of RCP8.5. The reader is referred to Open File 7737 for background and methods for deriving the relative sea-level projections.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file gives tables of projected relative sea-level change for selected locations in Canada and the adjacent mainland United States. It supplements (but does not replace) a previously released open that provided plots but did give tables of values. The reader is referred to the previously released open file (OF 7737, "Relative Sea-level Projections in Canada and the Adjacent Mainland United States") for a description of how the sea-level projections were generated and a related discussion.
